Strengthening the Climate Resilience of Rural Infrastructure in Timor Leste

The UNDP-supported Strengthening the Resilience of Small-Scale Rural Infrastructure in Timor Leste (SSRI) project is working to increase the climate resilience of rural infrastructure for communities that are most vulnerable to extreme climate events and climate risks in the three pilot districts of: Ermera; Baucau and Liquica. These projects focus mainly on four categories of infrastructure including:
• Water supply systems
• Rural access roads and bridges
• Reservoirs and irrigation systems
• Stabilizing river banks/flood protection
